Wily Studies the Scouting Report
Dodgers seek to keep up what could, optimistically and in only the vaguest sense of the word, be called momentum. Crawford and Gonzalez have been anchoring an offense that is beginning to show some signs of life. The already-thin pitching corps was due to send out Stephen Fife today. (I personally watched Fife pitch last weekend in Baltimore, where the Orioles pretty much chased him off a cliff. This guy can blow up at any time, and usually does.) But in an even worse turn of events, this really shitty pitcher gets put on the DL to be replaced by an presumably even shittier pitcher, Matt Magill. Can't make this stuff; it's beginning to feel like we're in a cartoon.
We also get the news that it looks like Mark Ellis is headed to the DL with a quad issue, so look to see Punto and Schumaker fill in until Hanley Ramirez is activated soon and we have more warm bodies to work with.
Ned, please send off to ACME for some reinforcements!
